We will get to know each other in the joint act of creation. It's not as though there's much to talk about right now.

Let's fill the void. The universe will be an endless dance of worlds that get near to each other for a brief moment and then depart, perhaps only to approach again many years later.

My first companion is so full of questions! It may calm them down if I answer some.

I tell them that we are alone. We are all existence, and the void is endless. This I know.

My companion’s mind slows as they contemplate the true emptiness of existence, and a great longing fills them.

Their sense of longing saddens me. I embrace them once more, for both our sakes. They are my friend, my true companion, and with them I will share all powers of creation.

Darkness emanates from my companion. Their very presence fills the empty void- their consciousness spreads dark matter wherever it touches, and it is good. With this, their potential to create is limitless.

My companion notices this, too, and with a burst of will, conjures more darkness, eagerly forming and shaping it into new forms.

Look! Look! I can make friends!

My Joy warms us both, and my companion creates more and more forms- the first of creation. At first they are basic shapes, but soon they combine into unusual combinations, hinting at more.

I like them! says my companion. Are they our friends?

They are beautiful forms, yes. But they are not companions. They do not move, think or feel like a true companion. They have an aspect of creation, but lack a connection to the eternal.

If I give them names, will they be our friends?

A name is powerful. A name, chosen properly, will do. But it is not enough by itself, nor is it a requirement. Neither I nor my companion have names.

If I give them Light, will they be our friends?

I consider the thought. I have not tried combining Light and Darkness- and I immediately wonder why I have not done so already. Light and dark can and do coexist, and to combine them within the same form would be a beautiful thing.

I offer the Light of creation to my companion, and they accept it eagerly.

And then they recoil in pain.

It hurts! Please, make it stop!

I immediately snuff the light, filled with Grief. My companion, even though they are made of Darkness, should be able to coexist with the Light- but they do not know how to do so safely, and how to protect themselves.

I embrace my companion again, taking away their pain and terror.

I can protect them. I can change them. Make their essence impervious to harm from the Light of creation. It would be the simplest thing, and by protecting them from the only thing that can harm them, it would ensure they will truly be my eternal companion.

Do I bless my companion with invulnerability to the Light of creation?
-Yes
-No

I can take away their pain and fear, but I must do more.

What do I name my companion?

Ah, now there's a decision.

If we grant them immunity to the light of creation, then in a sense they will be our equal. We would be granting a strong measure of trust to them, as we will hold no power over them beyond their innate love of us.

We may regret it down the line, but I say that we should give it to them. A display of paranoia and distrust this early may in a self-fulfilling way drive them down a dark path. And even if our friend starts making bad choices, that doesn't mean we should use the light of creation to wipe them out. Not having the option will force us to make better choices.

As for a name, let's keep it nice and simple. The Companion

It's a fitting name, as it describes what it is, why it creates, and why it exists at all. It is to be a companion, both to you and to the ones it creates.

No. Sheltering them from the danger does not shelter others they expose to it.
How about TRI.
>>
No. 1015066 ID: f8fa51

Yes, we should grant protection from the light of creation.

As for a name, they are both powerful and quite basic/simple in a way, as well as being the first thing we ever created. A fitting name to encapsulate this would be Prime.

There is only one thing to do. If my companion is truly to be eternal, and assist me in creating all things, then I cannot bear the thought of them ever coming to harm.

I console my companion and heal their pain with a promise, granting them complete, unconditional immunity to the Light of creation, the only thing that could harm them:

You are my beloved companion, and we will never be parted. I promise that nothing may ever harm you, and you shall be eternal as I am, verily. It is so.

You are precious to me, and so I name you truthfully, wholly, and completely. You are Companionship, to me and to all creation. It is so.

Companionship’s love warms us both, and it fills me with great Joy.

And then they say it ten thousand times.

Companionship! Companionship! Companionship! Comp! An! Ion! Ship! Panion! Ship!

By the end they are simply repeating “Pan” over and over gleefully, having independently arrived at the concept of a nickname.

I decide to evaluate Pan’s work while they get used to their name.

Three of Pan’s many, many creations are things that I know to be forms with great potential. I may encourage Pan to craft them into additional Attendants like themselves (made of light or dark, or both, and bound by Duties), or perhaps something less permanent and more beautiful (creatures with a weaker tie to Eternity, but not bound by Duties).

Which of Companionship’s creations do I wish to develop further?
1. Cat
2. Dog
3. Bird
4. Other

Shall they be attendants (permanent forms bound by duties), or creatures (unbound, impermanent forms)?
A. Attendants

So, now that we have a second, what kind of god should we be? Should we be a god birth and creation who overcomes their fear of being alone, actually over coming it by making a universe of life and other gods so no one will ever feel like he would? Or are we a god of birth and creation who let's their fear of being alone control them, who creates gods, demons, monsters and heroes alike with reckless abandon, with almost all of them leaving them to stop the other. So not to be alone, keeping the endless cycle of violence intact, creates another. (Making Shin Megami Tensei dudes too)

AKA the god mother/father or the god father/mother of monsters.

For now, I decide to encourage Companionship to join me in creating Bird (Avian) attendants. These forms have great potential to aid as messengers and cultivators. I may always make a few changes later, and include attendants who prefer different forms, but this is an excellent start.

I nudge Pan towards their Avian form, gather the Aspects of Creation around us, and together, we lay the foundations for our friends.

BEGIN YOUR WORK.

Every single Attendant suggestion is canon.

Attendants made of Pure Light and Pure Dark are powerful, but tend to extremes in both personality and abilities, and are weak to the opposite Aspect of Creation. Balanced attendants are more harmonious in abilities and powers, are resistant to their opposing element (or mostly immune to excessive quantities of both if Balanced). However, mixed aspects cannot wield forces of creation as effectively as pure vessels if they ever need to do so as part of their duties or in battle.

Name:
Duties: Minimum one, maximum five.
Aspect of Creation: Pure Light / Pure Dark / Light-dominant / Dark-dominant / Balanced
Preferred Bird Form: Predator? Prey? Large? Small? Cute? Scary?

Companionship and I create thirteen beautiful, wonderful, hopeful Attendants. They will bring warmth, spirit, change, and guidance for everything to come, and it will be good.

Companionship and I take a moment before birthing our thirteen Attendants.

There will be conflict, but harmony can often be difficult to distinguish from stagnation. Mortals- when we create them- must learn from how my Attendants resolve their differences.

Ah, mortals. Without a firm tie to Eternity, their physical forms tend to fade, leaving behind only spirits. They live, die, and pass on so quickly it is difficult for me to know them intimately, as I do my Attendants, and this causes me Grief.

But mortals are so clever, so lively, and their wills so strong that they can determine their own purpose- it fills me with Anticipation to see what they do.

Mortals… My Attendants will not be able to fill the void with mortals by themselves- they will require my and Companionship’s help. The celestial bodies we fill the void with, on which mortals will live, will be simpler, and my Attendants will be able to shape them to their liking.

Companionship looks upon the concepts of the as-yet-to-be animated Attendants.

“I created a form for myself, too. Do you think they will like it?”


How many species of mortals with sentience should we create? Sentience will take time to develop.
1. One at first
2. Few at first
3. Many at first

How many worlds should the mortals be created on?
A. All on one world, with all other worlds uninhabitable
B. Few inhabitable worlds, with all sentient species spread across them, with high chance to interact
C. Many inhabitable worlds, with potential for several sentient species per world, but low chance to interact across-world
D. Many inhabitable worlds, but only one sentient species per world; low chance to interact outside rare events

What forms of sentient mortals should we create? (Choose one or more)
I. Humanoid
II. Feline
III. Canine
IV. Aquatic
V. Avian
VI. Other

How much input should our attendants have in creating and shaping mortal society and the world/s they live on?
-None
-Minor
-Some
-Major
-Total control; we just follow their directions

Do I think the Attendants will like Companionship’s adorable bird form?
-Yes, definitely
-Yes, probably
-Some will, some won’t
-Only if you make it fluffier

2, let's make a few and go from there.

B, Let's give them a few worlds just in case they screw one of them up really bad.

II and VI, Felines of course, but I'm gonna suggest Bovids and Equids for some real variety. Get some sheep and horses in the world.

Minor, each of them are likely going to want different contrasting things. While we could meet all of their whims, it's better to get them used to the idea that the world isn't built just for them from the get-go. Add small things that will bring them joy, but otherwise leave it to them to make the world they get into the one they want.

Some will, some won't. This is the nature of life.

A few species, on many worlds with multiple per world. They include feline, avian, aquan, and silicon based life i.e. golems, with maybe a smattering of plantfolk and humanoids. Give the attendants minor influence but let the cards mostly fall as they may.
